Shoot the old women and children

BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Israel troops admit Gaza abuses

"An Israeli military college has printed damning soldiers' accounts of the killing of civilians and vandalism during recent operations in Gaza. One account tells of a sniper killing a mother and children at close range whom troops had told to leave their home. ... In another cited case, a commander ordered troops to kill an elderly woman walking on a road, even though she was easily identifiable and clearly not a threat." (BBC)

"You know what," (Ollie to Stan), "we're going to have to investigate!" (Flicks tie out.) "Why is that?" (Stan, with perplexed look, scratching head.) "Doh! Because we don't know what we did! Can't you even see that?!" (Stan looks lost.)
